Title: Conic Sections (Visual Dictionary of Special Plane Curves)
Url: http://xahlee.info/SpecialPlaneCurves_dir/ConicSections_dir/conicSect...
Creator: Lee, Xah
Publisher: xahlee.org
Description: A discussion of the history of conic sections, one of the oldest math subjects studied systematically and thoroughly, with a description, formulas, properties, a proof, Mathematica notebooks, the ellipse seen as a circle, second degree curves, intersection of circles, orthogonal conics, Pascal's Theorem and Brianchon's Theorem, and related sites. Illustrations, including one showing the intersections of parallel planes and a double cone, forming ellipses, parabolas, and hyperbolas respectively. Hosted by the Math Forum.
